Reviews and Comments

From Ryan :

Pluto is a well-pampered, domesticated dog. However, his wild side (portrayed as a wolf) convinces him to use his instincts to get food rather than getting fed by his owner. I enjoy the animation in this short, but it really isn't one of my favorites.

From Charlie Quigg :

I like Pluto because I think he's a tenderfoot. I don't really like him with sharp teeth.

From Baruch Weiss :

I don't really care for this short. The reason why Primo (voiced by Paul Frees) wanted Pluto to hunt for his food like a "real" dog was that so he could eat Pluto's food. I noticed the rabbit near the end of this cartoon (who is named Flutter Foot) was the same one seen in the 1947 cartoon Mail Dog.
